This article reports that a Senate Appropriations panel yesterday unanimously approved a $90.6 billion fiscal 2005 spending package for the Transportation and Treasury departments. "I'm proud that the bill includes a historically high $34.9 billion for highway infrastructure investment," Senator Richard C.

"This investment creates jobs, fuels economic growth by reducing the transportation cost associated with American goods and services, and improves our citizens' quality of life by easing their ability to move about the country."
